Sani Dangote, the late Vice President of Dangote Group, and brother of the African richest man Aliko Dangote has on Wednesday, November 17, 2021, been laid to rest.
However, while many people had thought Sani to be buried immediately as it relates to the religion he practised, which was Islam, he couldn’t be buried immediately as his body arrived in Kano State from the United States on Tuesday, November 16.
But two days after Sani passed away, his burial event which was led by Imam Sani Muhammad and attended by thousands of Muslims, was conducted at the palace of the Emir of Kano at about 11 a.m.
Unmaskng.com learnt that the deceased was buried at Sarari graveyard, where deceased members of Dantata family are buried.
Following the burial, Sheikh Tijjani Bala-Kalarawi, who led the prayers at the event, described the deceased as a humble, generous, and nice gentleman during his lifetime.
He stressed the need for people to judge themselves based on their deeds every day before going to bed, to enable them to do more good deeds while alive.
